If the NFL can check every player a few times a week for a virus, then why the fuck can't they do more for brain injuries.

Sure CTE is something thar happens over a long period of time, but my guess is it would be hard to field 32 teams every week if they dug deeper in players with weekly head trauma.

The NFL needs to do more for these guys once they've retired.

The answer is pretty simple. They test for the virus in order to keep the teams available for the TV shows they produce. That's the NFL lifeline. Brain injury may be prevalent but it's not a threat to revenue.

That's stating the obvious, but when players move on seems the NFL couldn't give a fuck. Unless it's bad enough PR to force a turnaround. Like we saw this season.
